Rainbow Passport - Recovery Resources - 12-Step Meetings

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.

Al-Anon

For over 50 years, Al-Anon (which includes Alateen for younger members) has been offering hope and help to families and friends of alcoholics. It is estimated that each alcoholic affects the lives of at least four other people... alcoholism is truly a family disease. No matter what relationship you have with an alcoholic, whether they are still drinking or not, all who have been affected by someone else’s drinking can find solutions that lead to serenity in the Al-Anon/Alateen fellowship.

Narcotics Anonymous can help you find the freedom to live your life without the use of drugs.
Narcotics Anonymous is a fellowship or society of men and women for whom Drugs had become a major problem. ...We are not interested in what or how much you used or who your connections were, what you have done in the past, how much or how little you have, but only in what you want to do about your problem and how we can help.
Our Primary Purpose - to carry the message to the addict who still suffers.
If you think you may have a problem with drugs of any kind, please call our helpline or come to one of our meetings! This simple act can be the start of a new life free from the constant pain of addiction.

Codependents Anonymous
is a program of recovery based on working the Twelve Steps Co-Dependents Anonymous. Working the steps helps a person to realize that many of his/her problems have a solution. The Promise of the program is that when a member is diligent in working the Steps, he/she will achieve recovery over personal problems of codependence. The only requirement for membership is a desire for healthy and fulfilling relationships with others and ourselves. CoDA suggests attending 6 meetings before deciding if CoDA is meeting your individual needs.
